Set browser window size and position via URL parameters
Authored by: Stormchild on Apr 22, '09 04:27:11PM

This is a brilliant tip! I've often lamented the fact that I can't set a default size and position for Safari windows (as I had this feature for many years in OmniWeb).

You could even combine it with SafariStand's ability to block websites from moving or resizing your browser windows, by adding an exception for "localhost" or whatever URL you use for your startup page, and allowing those features for your local URL only. I don't want to allow all sites to do this, so this would be ideal.

And to all of you who are complaining about this as if it was a suggestion to mess with *other people's* browser windows, you have completely missed the point. It's been explained already, so I won't reiterate it, but jeez, have your morning coffee before you start ranting like an idiot (I thought the purpose of this tip would have been totally obvious even to someone still half-asleep, but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt).

SafariStand won't do that

The ability to block pages from resizing the window is in SafariStand's Advanced settings. It's Site Alternation options don't seem to have a way to undo this Advanced option, or at least I couldn't find anything that remotely matched.
